Make sure you have the linux-headers package that matches your current kernel version, plus the appropriate generic header packages so that they are automatically updated on a kernel upgrade. The relevant driver has built-in logic to probe the actual chip, for example: WPA works with ndiswrapper according to this howto: By joining our community uubntu will have the ability to post topics, receive our newsletter, use the advanced search, subscribe to threads and access many other special features.

Works fine with the exception that it does NOT see WAPoints at channel 13, make sure your wifi router is at a lower channel. To test the driver and remove the need for a computer restart use: The second is the b43 driver, maintained upstream by the Linux kernel community.
